Let’s Bite Off More Than We Can Chew !

Started yet another infinity scarf, really enjoying them as I’ve hit my groove with the pattern so can sit in front of the tv and at the end of the evening I have a finished product. You can see a slight variation today, with half a ball of yarn left I was loathed to letting it go to waste and decided to see if there was enough to do a large shell stitch along each edge. There was! I had just 8″ of yarn left at the end so it was a close run thing 🙂

Have also started a test project for the baby bootie pattern that I posted pics of a wee while ago. Have read through the instructions and I see an issue with the finish that I am not happy about so I will attempt to overcome this with some of my much loved hand sewing but more of that when I have finished them. Then I will be able to declare victory or failure….. I am anticipating victory on this one and hope to report my success tomorrow night. Touch wood and whistle 🙂

In an attempt to keep my head in some sort of order I bought a 2014 diary 75% OFF in the sales…. perfect. This has kept me to some sort of schedule the past couple of days which is exactly what I need as I do rather seem to bite off more than I can chew and with a shocking memory things can get pretty chaotic in my house. Keep your fingers crossed for me that my little diary brings a bit of balance to my crazy world 😉

Have a groovy day dear reader x
